  • Beautiful campground.staff keeps the property clean. But Bathroom and showers are not together. So shower, then walk outside to go into the toilet side to brush your teeth. I thought that was odd. And if you like trains, this is a campsite for you. Every 5-10 min at daylight hours. Night time maybe once an hour.
  • Highly recommend the tent spaces. There are only six, so reserve early. They were nestled in the forest with a decent amount of space between them and a short walk from the car. The bathrooms are best I've seen anywhere with hot water showers. -- Tent camping in an RV space.-- If you are a light sleeper, the trains might bother you. We spent our first night in an RV space near the road side (B03; it was the last space), and the trains going by many times a night kept one of our group up. In the tent spaces, we were further away and the trees probably muffled the noise.
  • Tent camping is secluded away from the RVs. Nice trails, and friendly camp hosts. If you don't like droning highway noise in the distance, stay away. I did not mind.
  • Decent RV camping, but far too noisy to be comfortable in a tent. Crowded, though with nice people, and the facilities are nice. Freeway and train noise a constant drone. Best used as a base for other gorge exploration.
  • Great campground! It offers everything from tent sites to large pull-thru sites with full hookups. Great hiking trails to several of the Columbia Gorge falls.
